NC State adds grad transfer DE Daniel Joseph
NC State football has added a defensive end to its mix for next season. Penn State graduate transfer Daniel Joseph announced Sunday afternoon he will be joining the Wolfpack.
The Wolfpacker first mentioned Joseph as a name to watch to subscribers on the Wolves’ Den message board on Jan. 22.
Joseph played 32 games in three seasons after redshirting at Penn State. He posted 29 tackles, 5.5 stops for loss, five sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery during that time.
The 6-foot-3, 260-pound Joseph was rated a three-star recruit, the No. 13 overall player in Illinois and the No. 27 strongside defensive end in the country coming out of Lake Forest (Ill.) Academy in the 2016 class. He picked Penn State over offers from Michigan and Michigan State, both of which he visited multiple times.
Joseph is a welcome addition for NC State’s defensive line after it was hit by transfers from redshirt junior Jeffrey Gunter and redshirt sophomore Joseph Boletepeli during the offseason. He will have one season of eligibility left and will be able play immediately.
